Town Center at Lake Forest Park announces composting and recycling initiative

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Town Center at Lake Forest Park announced an initiative to create a more environmentally-friendly food court. The neighborhood center, which is managed by Madison Marquette Retail Services (MMRS), will now - for the first time ever - offer designated recycling and composting bins in the food court.

“We are always looking for ways to create a more sustainable center and with the community’s support, this program will significantly reduce waste,” said Tory Glossip, Senior General Manager for MMRS. “Town Center at Lake Forest Park enjoys a great relationship with our community and we look forward to working together to improve our neighborhood environment.”

The program will go into effect on August 1, with the recycling and composting bins available in the center’s food court. Town Center at Lake Forest Park will work with Seattle-area environmental solutions company Cedar Grove to collect and utilize the composting materials. The center will be using social media to let consumers know of the upcoming changes and spread awareness about the importance of recycling and composting.

“Our shoppers will benefit from this new program, as will our surrounding community,” said Glossip. “We are excited about taking this new step in environmental stewardship, and we hope our consumers will appreciate this new program and work with us for the good of our environment.”

Town Center at Lake Forest Park is a Seattle-area neighborhood center offering a dynamic mix of retail, dining and entertainment options with more than 240,000 square feet of retail space. The center’s Third Place Commons offers more than 800 community events throughout the calendar year.

MMRS provides a full range of real estate services for 20 million square feet of retail and mixed-use properties throughout the United States.  MMRS has headquarters in San Francisco and Washington, DC and regional offices located in Charlotte, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego and Seattle.
